Despite getting mixed reviews, Simmba had a rocking first day at the box office and managed to earn big. Directed by Rohit Shetty, this action-drama made a lot of buzz before its release and the fans of Rohit and Ranveer were for it to hit theaters eagerly. The wait ended on Friday 28th and the film opened with huge numbers. Simmba box office collection day 1 is whopping ₹ 20.72 cr despite the fact that Friday was a regular working day.
Looking such massive collections on day 1 it’s expected that the number will rise to a very impressive mark as it will be a holiday on Saturday. If this happens, Simmba will have a huge weekend total and it might join the 100 crore club on the weekend itself. It will not be a surprise if Simmba joins the 200 crore club in a week or so because the hype of the film among the moviegoers is huge.
Thus, Simmba turns out to be the biggest opening day film for Ranveer Singh:
1. Simmba ₹ 20.72 cr
2. Padmaavat ₹ 19 cr [Thu]
3. Gunday ₹ 16.12 cr
4. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela ₹ 16 cr
5. Bajirao Mastani ₹ 12.80 cr (India Biz)
